Burren National Park Information Point

The Burren National Park Information Point, in the village of Corofin, is open year round. Here you can pick up trail maps, meet our knowledgeable guides and learn more about the Burren National Park.

The free shuttle bus service provides transport from the Information Point to the park during the visitor season.


Home-based Learning

The need to promote awareness of our natural heritage and biodiversity in the parks, and to inform and educate our visitors remains as important as ever. To reach out to people, we have devised a programme of downloadable activities for your learning and enjoyment, which can be completed at home. Fun activities include a minibeast hunt, garden bird survey, quiz and natural art, all designed to help you learn about the nature on your doorstep.
